Keeping Score - A minimum of one person for each card will need to keep score via the PDGA Digital Scorecard. A backup scorecard is required at PDGA events, we recommend two people use the PDGA Digital Scorecard because if there are discrepancies, the scorecard will let you know immediately.

OB’s & Relief - the digital scorecard has OB’s listed for each hole, but in general:
Roads - On or over any paved road is OB.
Vegetation - A player may take relief from thorny bushes, thorny trees, or poison ivy, behind the lie and on the line of play, no penalty stroke.
If your disc lands entirely under a bridge, stair, or culvert you may mark your lie on the surface above.
Water - other than the pond at hole three, all water water is casual, take relief behind your lie on the line of play, no penalty stroke.
Playoffs for First Place Only - If there is a tie for first place when all scores have been finalized on the PDGA event page, start at hole one with a sudden-death playoff. Holes 1,2,3,8,&9 loop. Flip for who tees first on hole one, then alternate each tee afterwards.
Payouts - Open payouts will be cash, notify the TD if you prefer paypal. All Amateur division payouts will be handled by Show Me Disc Sports on site. Vouchers must be turned in on the day of the event! Make sure to find out whether you cashed before you leave, especially MA2 and MA3! Projected Payouts are posted.
Newbies, listen up! - This is a PDGA Sanctioned event, we will be playing by the PDGA rules. If you are unfamiliar with the rules, here are a few important ones:
No practice throws during the round - From the two-minute warning until your last putt of the round, a player receives one penalty throw for making a practice throw. A drop is not a practice throw, neither is a throw that is made either to set aside an unused disc or to return a disc to a player and that travels less than five meters in the air.
No falling putts - If you are within 10 meters of the basket (32’-10”), after having released a putt, the player must demonstrate full control of balance behind the marker disc before advancing toward the target. A player who fails to do so has committed a stance violation and receives one penalty throw.
Lost disc - A disc is declared lost if the player cannot locate it within three minutes after having arrived at the area where it is thought to be. Any player in the group may begin the timing of the three minutes, and must inform the group that the timing has begun. All players in the group must assist in searching for the disc. Failure to do so is a courtesy violation. A player whose disc has been declared lost receives one penalty throw. The next throw is made from the previous lie.
Rulings - Officiate yourselves as a group. Each player must state an opinion, majority rules, 50/50 vote goes to the player’s favor. Declare a provisional and play it both ways if applicable, and discuss it with the Tournament Director immediately after the round.
